Saw some speck traffic heading north today also.
Went thru my project Friday. Had to reset 8 boxed knocked down from hi water and actually lost 2. Installed 6 new ones and moved 3 existing ones. Lots of activity by both hoodies and woodies. I counted 130 woodie eggs and 160 hoodie eggs. Hatched out a few clutches for approx. 80 chicks. Recaptured 5 banded hens and a couple naked ones. Ranch is still at shoot level. Pass Road is actually closed due to flooding. Sac river was licking at Rocco's parkinglot which was surprising
All good news! Next year is looking promising as all hell... question for you guys with the boxes. Are you guys banding the mergansers?... asking for a friend
Man that’s hoodie central! I have my first hoodie box going.
Still lots of water in the sink. A buddy has most of his under water right now.
I band them.
I dont know why maybe it has to do with lack of deep water but in 5 or 6 years of doing boxes I have still not had a hoodie in my boxes yet. Starling get me every year as do those stinking wasps............... but no hoodies.
When your wife helps you build Woodduck boxes, numbering them just won’t do.....
Bluebills I drive by everyday seem to be sitting in bigger rafts everyday. They should be bailing anyway now.
Was up above Princeton today, saw numerous high flocks of specks heading north. Maybe they are finally leaving, although three hours earlier had seen a thousand by Colusa refuge feeding and sleeping but maybe that was the final pre migration gathering.
Specks were moving pretty good this morning north east of Comusa plus had one big group of snows fly over at 7:30 am.
